What The...?

Just in case you're wondering, men and women have the same number of ribs.

Some people were discussing theories of evolution, and one declared that she whole-heartedly believes God placed a man on the earth and formed him after His own image. And then God took Adam's rib and made Eve, which is why men have one less rib than women. Hmm? Excuse? Sure, ok, yes I believe men and women are made in God's image and that Adam and Eve were the first and we didn't evolve from fishy things or monkeys. I do, however, believe evolution happens. We're a changing species (albeit over long periods of time) and genes do change.

But that's the key element in this discussion for me- genes. As Kev pointed out when I later talked with him about this, it may be true that God literally took a rib from Adam and made Eve but that doesn't change Adam's genetics. It's like if I cut off my finger, and Kev cuts off his finger, we're not going to have a kid with one less finger. Unless that change goes beyond the physical and gets into my/Kev's DNA, our kid isn't going to be physically altered.

See what happens when you don't go to college?

Be cool, stay in school. Please.
